Great Egret Low Over Swamp

Great Egrets put on displays during the mating season. The first I have noticed is an acrobatic fly by of what I assume to be the females. Incredibly graceful and agile it is proving difficult to catch many of the antics.

I have always loved catching them flying low, a wing tip skimming over the water. I will need 50-100 shots to catch just the one above. I don’t want to think about how much film that would be.

    1. Thanks. I think series like this will be replacing the herons soon. Egrets are out impressing their choice for mates, herons home sitting on eggs. Kind of like suburbia out there.
